    Becky Barnes,




    A new fire station for Cynthiana is moving closer to reality.

    The Cynthiana City Commission voted Tuesday to move forward with the purchase of 25.769 acres on the north side of town.

    Commissioners authorized Mayor James Smith to sign documents for the purchase of property off of Indian Creek Road and adjacent to Flat Run Veterans’ Park.

    Beulah True and her son, Gerald Hill, were surprised on Sunday night, Aug. 14, when a bat-wielding burglar broke into their home on Indian Creek Drive.

    “We were in bed, when Mom said she heard someone in the house,” Hill said. “I guess it was about 10 p.m. I got up and looked around the house, then saw this guy with a baseball bat holding Mom.”

  • City buys LeBus property for new fire station

    The City of Cynthiana announced the purchase of approximately 26 acres of land for a new fire station.  

    The property is located adjacent to Flat Run Veterans’ Park with access to U.S. 27 North, according to Cynthiana Mayor James Smith. This location gives immediate access to the west side of Cynthiana by way of the bypass, downtown via Main Street and the north side of town via Church Street. 

  • Maysville Community and Technical College considers name change

    By Stephen Vacik, President, MCTC


    Some years ago, more than I really care to remember, there was a very popular advertising campaign for a camera company, with tennis star Andre Agassi as the celebrity spokesperson (he had hair and was really famous, millennials). The commercial showed Agassi playing both on and off the court, with the famous tag line, “image is everything.”  In other words, the way people view us matters.  

  • Cynthiana..’The Little Town That Could’

    Last week I took a much need hiatus to Florida and it gave me time to let the entirety of The Walking Dead Day sink in.  

    Two months ago, I posted a Facebook post asking for Walking Dead super fans to help with a top secret project.  

    I’m not sure my friends quite knew what they were getting into, but they committed to the very end. 

    I can remember sitting in the Chamber at that first meeting, not really sure how big the event would be. 

  • Viewpoint

    This is no doubt one of the busiest times of the year.

    There is much to look forward to in the coming weeks. So before you complain that there is nothing to do in Cynthiana, check out some of the things coming our way.

    This weekend is something new and will bring some beautiful motorcycles to our streets.

    It’s a first-ever Bike Night, and is being offered as a precursor to Cynthiana’s Rod Run, which is the following weekend, Saturday, Aug. 27.

  • How will you be remembered?

    What kind of person are you? When you pass away, how will you be remembered by those who knew you? 

    A couple of weeks ago, my family returned to Texas because I was asked to conduct the memorial service of one of our former church members there. Glen Milham passed away in the early hours of Aug. 1, the very day of his 89th birthday.
